David Hagerbaumer

Biography from Collectors Covey

"I got my break in 1954, when a mentor, Edward Selden Spaulding, showed my work to Ralph Terrill, who managed the Crossroads of Sport in New York City. At that time, there were only a few sporting artists on the scene and only 16 American artists appeared in the Crossroads' catalog that year. Today, very likely, there are 50 times that number painting the same subjects.

I enjoy a career that let me live where I choose, paint mostly what I want and make a decent living doing so. My goals for the coming year are to do a few watercolors, work on a new book and start painting landscapes in oils again.

I am a loner and that's how I would like to be remembered. I've gone my own way, created my own style, and gathered my own reference material with field sketches and photos. I hope to be remembered as one did his best and walked his talk." - David Hagerbaumer
